. we are here as part of our 100- city silenced majority to wear. on this week when president obama and republican presidential hopeful mitt romney debated issues of foreign policy and the economy, we turn to world-renowned political dissident, linguist, author, and mit professor noam chomsky. in a recent speech, professor chomsky examined topics largely ignored or glossed over during the campaign -- from china to the arab spring, to global warming and the nuclear threat posed by israel versus iran. he spoke last month at the university of massachusetts in amherst, at any event sponsored by the center for popular economics. his talk was entitled, "who owns the world?" >> when i was thinking about these remarks, i had two topics in mind. i could not decide between them. pretty obvious ones. one topic is, what are the most important issues that we face? the second topic is, what issues are not being treated seriously or at all in the quadrennial frenzy now under way called in election? but i realize that there is no problem. it is not a hard choice. they are the same topic. there are
six or seven and i think one or two flipped from republican to obama. >> greg: "the billings gazette." >> bob: in texas, they're three papers and they will go republic. "the des moines register" matters. it's bigest in the state and has political influence. if there one paper i want for all in the country it's that paper. >> kimberly: thank you for that truthful and refreshing -- >> eric: you say that, unless "new york times" endorsed a republican. >> bob: you tracked it on polls. it makes a difference. if you can't win ohio, you have to win at great length. needs to win a number of stat states. iowa is another. iowa is important. >> eric: can we talk iowa? ohio. thank you. northern part of ohio is very democratic and obama. a lot of car companies, tire companies up there. southern part being republican. you want to go for the middle piece of ohio. if romney doesn't win ohio, gets iowa, wisconsin becomes the in play state. >> eric: wisconsin and you need to win two other states. >> bob: i'm giving him right now florida, north carolina, and virginia. >> eric: because he's lea leading.

that the obama campaign has a bigger ground operation. they've put more focus on the ground although republicans have done a lot to build up ground operation that was really outclassed four years ago. this is... october... it's the nature an october surprise that you do not know exactly they fact it will have. this might affect release of that jobs number on friday we've all been waitingor. eveif the jobs number comes out maybe it overwhelms it. who knows. >> woodruff: the unemployment report for the month of october. dan, what about the state o race right now? both of you have been looking at the polls. where does this race stand right now? >> judy, it is very, very very, very close nationally. you mentionedded the pew survey that came out today at 47% each. our new tracking poll which came out at 5:00 today showed both candidates at 49%. there are other polls that show it slightly different. but everyndication isthat naionally th is a very close race. the question is where do things stand exactly in the battle ground states? the obama campaign has been insistent that they continue to have lead
. but earlier in fall, a higher percentage of republicans said they were voting against president obama. today a higher percentage of republicans, a majority say they are voting for governor romney. there has has been a change in enthusiasm. judy, i think one question that every pollster and every analyst i've talked to recently is trying to figure out is what will the composition of this electorate be? will republicans equal democrats in the number... percentage of the vote? what will the percentage of white voters be versus nonwhite voters? because this is so close, all of those questions are vitally important. we can't tell that in advance. >> woodruff: finally, susan, in just a few seconds, what do you look for in these final days of the trail to see when the candidates get back out, what they're saying? and where do they go? you know, they're only going to have a couple days after they can get back on the campaign trail after sandy has done whatever it's going to do. what states do they go to? that tells you what states are really in play. >> woodruff: susan page, dan balz, we thank you b

clinton going into minnesota, you've got barack obama and the republicans spending money in pennsylvania, and you have the republicans back on the defense in north carolina with a poll there. do you see any trends that we're missing? >> no, i think you're right. i think it's the drifting back and forth without any real purpose. the voters are back and forth on this. and people, of course, in the middle are back and forth. i think there's been one major event in this general election season, and that was the first debate which the president lost. and ever since then, it's almost been like newton's law of physics, it keeps in motion until operated by outside force. this weather condition situation, we don't know which way it's going to go, but it does, in fact, create a possible new force in this election. the president acting as president. so, look, the only thing he can do if he's smart is think about nothing else but being president for three days and hopes he'll get the breaks in terms of the election. >> mark haleprin, i would actually agree with that. there is this new force going on

forture, nothing in life for sure, but it almost is. if you have a republican senate, unlikely if obama is legislated, but possible, well, he can veto any attempt they would make to overturn obamacare. american people in re-elected president obama are reenforcing obamacare and accepting that as their future. if a president romney is elected, even without a republican senate, with the basically the president votes in the house about the same and the senate within one or two votes being republican. you can get obama care overturned. there's four or five democratic votes in the senate to vote with him, 2014 elections right around the corner. they are always right around the corner. a lot of democrats coming up in 2014 that are in states that do not view obamacare as very favorable. be really easy for romney to pick off four or five democrats, probably not get to 60, but he probably get get to 54, 5 # 5, 56 votes through reconciliation to get rid about all of obamacare. two totally dramatic directions. we'll expand the government control of health care, which is what obamacare does, i don't

which was cut off, has already happened so the obama campaign, in large part because of the republicans have actually banked more early votes this time than they had at this point in '08 so they've built up like a fire wall while the republicans are left with this to hamper their early vote. >> thanks for joining me tonight. >> we'll be right back with more coverage. >>> msnbc's meteorologist is back with the latest. bill, my one question is, where has the worst already happened? and where is the worst yet to happen? >> yeah. it can't get any worse than the jersey shore or the delaware area of maryland and coastal areas, you hit your high tide cycle and the water is receding quickly including new york city and that's good. you won't get any more destruction. it's been done. as far as areas that still have to go through their high tide, portions of outer long island, coastal connecticut and rhode island, your high tide is between 11:00 and midnight here on the east coast and that's when the damage will be done. it won't be as bad as your friends to the south but that's where we have dest
that this is an obstructionist republican majority in the house. >> i think that's because obama is in a trap. he has painted himself into a corner, which makes him vulnerable to the charge, which has been heard increasingly often, that you don't know what obama's going to do in his second term, that he doesn't have an agenda, that only the past he's willing to talk about, that was a failure. and he can't tell you because it's not going to be good. i think the problem obama has is that he can tell part of the story, thanks to bill clinton, which is, "they gave me a prblem and i stopped what they were doing. now you don't want to give it back to the people who caused the problem." but what he is not then able to do, which i wish he would do, is to say, "and the reason it was so hard for me to do as much as i wanted, and the reason i need your help, america, going forward, is that these people are going to fight us tooth and nail every step of the way. and starting with dealing with this fiscal cliff in which there's this terrible sequester deal, those people are holding the country hostage. i'm going to go to
and republicans in the senate and house, obama decided to let terrorist go in guantanamo bay when he was told they were going to kill servicemen and women overseas, and he still let them out. and he still offered police to be under were, when he tried to -- offered pleas to the underwear bomber when he tried to blow us up. does does sound like someone we want in office? guest: i'm not sure what the caller is referencing. again, i would say that i fully trust in our president's leadership when it comes to foreign policy and military issues. he has shown that he can make incredibly bold decisions that need to be made to keep us safe. and to keep our interests abroad save as well. host: thank you for your time in talking to our viewers this morning. guest: thanks for having me. >> i was like to ask you a question similar to the vice- presidential candidates. as a catholic, how has your view on abortion been shaped by religion? >> i am not catholic. i am episcopalian. my husband is catholic. my children are catholic. my grandchildren have been baptized in the catholic church. but i would be happy
. president clinton held president obama's campaign event in orlando without him. as well as a second event in ohio with vice president biden. the republican challenger mitt romney cancelled one of three campaign events on his schedule today. he did still address crowds in ohio and davenport, iowa. he held a town hall with voters in ohio by teleconference. but now romney's slate of events for tomorrow has been cleared. mr. romney's running mate paul ryan held one event in florida before cutting the day short and heading to his home in wisconsin. in terms of hurricane sandy's direct effect on next week's election, chuck todd reports tonight that the fema director craig foou gait has told states if they incur extra costs because of the storm, if they have to move polling places or bring in generators for power, should sandy cause elections officials any expensive changes, states and cities will be reimbursed for those costs by the federal disaster relief, ev if one doesn't believe in that sort of thing. this is not a time for ideology. let's bring in michelle franzen in battery park in lower

approval is going down. republican identification is going up. obama needs something, whether it be an october surprise or leadership. >> sean: to win. >> to win, yes. >> last week we said the most important number was approval. his approval went down in gallup to 47 and in rasmussen to 47. something i think is seeping in, and i wish the republicans used more of it because it's an outage. >> sean: this father, unbelievable. are you going to dial some ads when we great ads? we'll look at that and continue to monitor that and, of course, we're tracking sandy as it has now hit shore in new jersey and a lot of mid town manhattan has lost power and is underwater. we'll have the very latest and we're awaiting a press conference from new york city mayor michael block berg as soon as he comes -- bloomberg as soon as he comes to the podium, we'll bring it to you on the fox newschannel. boom! here it comes! bring it back! bring it home!

important. this morning on fox and friends, chris christie, the republican governor, praising president obama. >> and at 2 a.m. i got a call from fema and signed a couple of declarations, and give credit to the president, on the phone with me, three times, and anything i've asked for and i thank the president publicly for that he's done as far as i'm concerned a great job for new jersey. charles: of course, chris christie is known as a straight shooter and argue that president obama has looked presidential during the storm so far, what do you think, david? >> well, all he has to do is do his job and it's not going to help or hurt him i think on the political front, it's a matter of just appearing that i've taken care of whatever the states have asked me to do. fema will have to do their responsibilities and we'll see how that plays out over the days. >> it plays for governor romney. both of these guys, you cannot ignore a fact a week from today is the election. charles: right. >> so, he has to do everything he can -- well, the president has to do everything he has to do. charles: how do
way clear that president obama had mishandled this disaster or bungled it. but he is being praised by republican governor and the one that gave the keynote address at the republican national convention. further more, this whole thing is an opportunity to be the president. be filmed in situation room, et cetera, et cetera. if you can't be on the campaign trail, at least you can be doing that. i think more important than pennsylvania is virginia. which is a true swing state and really got clobbered by the thing they had power outages and flooding. in the northern virginia part of the state. they have a freak blizzard out in the coal counties which presumably would turn out for governor romney. i am hearing all of that stuff will be reed by election day, if you look for any impact is on the ability for people to turn out and vote. those would be the areas. my personal view is that by the time this is, you know, next -- one week from now, everything will be reed enough so normal voting can go on. >> bret: we mentioned chris christie and his praise for president obama and handling of th
. >> let me ask mark akbout pennsylvania. i was there last week. the republicans saying we can do this, we can win pennsylvania, democrats saying it's not even in play. what is your assessment? >> well the obama campaign needs pennsylvania to win. the romney campaign doesn't. i don't think they would be wasting the money in pennsylvania on the republican side if they thought they had no chance or at least a chance to distract the democrats. if the romney campaign went on the air in new york, i don't think the obama campaign would feel compelled to match the dollars there. if the obama campaign went on the air in texas tv i don't think the romney campaign would feel the need to go there. the vice president had a trip planned there means they're a little worried. republicans are doing two things at once, not just the romney campaign but outside groups, trying to put pressure on the president to defend turf like minnesota, and to move resources including candidate time away from ohio but to give themselves another potential path. it may be in the end, not predicting it, it's possible romney c
